Bedford town centre has seen significant development in the last few years, not least Riverside Bedford, the on-going Harpur Shopping Centrerenovations and Day’s Department store, soon to open on the former BhS site. The High Street has also benefited from investment, particularly the new Maysons Bedford store which relocated from the Arcade.
This week, confidence in the High Street continued as pub brand Slug &Lettuce Bedford opened its first venture on the site of the former Yates. Its new deluxe decor includes bold prints, neon hues and plenty of Instagram-friendly touches.
Featuring VIP cocktail masterclasses, a new menu, and the show-stopping Pornstar Martini Trees, the new addition to Bedford’s night-time economy is further proof that brands have confidence in investing in our town.
Paul Humphrey, General Manager at Slug & Lettuce Bedford, said: “We are thrilled to be launching Slug & Lettuce in Bedford. We’ve worked hard to ensure we’re the go-to for any get-together, whether grabbing a bite for a midweek meeting, or curating magical memories with a night out or celebration; we will be there to help people celebrate in style’’
